I initially had a problem accessing the CUPS interface (see my other post) and got that resolved by adding the user "cupsys". Now, everything "looks" ok, and when I print a test page, it shows it as completed (in CUPS). However, the page never prints. The printer is a Canon MP600 (using the canonmp600en.ppd file to configure it). Here's the output of my conf file.
Code: # Show troubleshooting information in error_log. LogLevel debug
Not sure when CUPS started acting up. I have the latest 13.1 current software installed.The first page to print is always OK, but all succeeding pages are overwritten. The second page shows the first page on top of it, and the third shows the preceding pages on top of it - and so on. Has anyone else seen this problem?I guess the printer buffer is not getting flushed correctly. If my configurations were trashed in some way, I don't know where to look for a fix.
I've tried to copy different tutorials so that I can put on paper everything prints except the important things(commands & script examples. Is this some kind of copy-right? If not issue with copy-right is it possible to have complete copy. Also I haven't seen in PDF form, I just need to copy so I can reference without having to be on computer.
So I have Fedora 14 installed on a laptop directly connected to my printer. I really never use the laptop except to send print jobs to it wirelessly. I was wondering if there was a way to make it suspend or sleep, or even idle everything down so it uses less power, but still listen for print jobs?
I have 2 printers plugged into a Windows XP PC (an Epson Stylus Photo RX580, and an HP Laserjet 1020) with full sharing on and everything, and is shared with other Windows PCs via the network I have set up. It has worked perfect. But today I added a PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and and can't figure out for the life of me what I am doing wrong. I installed both of the printers via the GUI in Administration, and both of them are detected and Ubuntu says they're working. But when I put something in the queue to print it stays there with the status "pending".
I have a problem with cups dropping print jobs. The machine fedora 13 installation using cups 1.4.4-10
The dropped jobs happen only rarely happen and therefore is difficult to debug the problem since it doesn't happen 99% of the time. This morning (while in the shower) I wondered if the lost jobs are lost because they are timing out, perhaps because of slow input from a user. I can test this more later in the week..
The print jobs are initiated from within a COBOL program. COBOL opens the print file as output and at this stage a job appears in the print queue with a status in the print queue of "held".
The user types in various bits of information and when complete the program executes the final write to the output print file. The job is somehow released and then is physically printed by CUPS. I suspect that if the user is slow the "held" job times out and then the job is lost.
There are a number of timeout directives in cups.conf but I am unsure which might be appropriate in this case. Or perhaps there is some other timeout thing happening.
I have no idea what's going on. I've had this machine running for over a year, and it's been great. A month or so ago, I realized that jobs weren't going to the printer. When i VNC'd in, I noticed that print jobs would show up in the queue as "Processing" briefly, then disappear.

I've even reinstalled the OS (not just for this reason) to no avail. Printer is dete cted without issue, I just can't use it.
I'm running openSUSe 11.3 on a laptop and the printer is connected to my desktop which is running Windows XP. I have the printer and several folders and drives shared. I can see the folders and drivers on my laptop but I cannot get the printer to actually print. It is an HP printer but I am not using HPLIP. I can send a print job to the queue and the printer resets itself like it's going to print but nothing else happens and the print job just sits in the queue until I hit cancel and restart then printer.
my ERP is sending multiple xml files to my queue and printing daemon reads each files and send it to windows printer (queue) where another software that uses each file and prints one document at a time.I would like to control first part when ERP send XML file I would like printing daemon to send files to windows queue in order the files came in from ERP. Currently it send it in random order. (i think it's based on how fast it can process, size of file..ect)
I have a Brother MFC-295CN network printer. Been having a heck of a time trying to get this thing working since I installed Ubuntu 11.04 yesterday. I've been away from Linux for some time and am new at using it. Downloaded and installed using the Software Center:
im searching a kde programm to show current print jobs. I've installed aptosid (actual version).I've searched the repository and I only found printer-applet which does not run in aptosid - I got the following error messages:
Code: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/printer-applet", line 1161, in <module>
Sometimes I want to keep something in PDF files, so I print to the PDF "printer". However, if I inadvertetnly forget to check the PDF creation and rather take the real printer (which is usually only powered up, when I really want to print something), printing goes to the real printers queue and nothing happens ... until, possibly some sessions later, I want to print something (on paper rather than PDF) and power up the printer.
Then all inadvertent garbage comes first and chances are big, that the printer gets junk during power up or reconnecting the cable to the computer and then the whole thing is wasting even more paper, since escape-sequences sent to the printer get chopped and misunderstood by the printer.
In order to stop this alltogether, I am looking for a mehtod, to automatically flush the whole printing queue every time when I log out of my ubuntu session.
I know, there is a command lpq to tell which print jobs are pending, I also know the command cancel -Umyname -a, but this requests for my password. I want to kill all those incomplete or pending print jobs automatically.
And how do I hook such a command script into the logoff or shutdown sequence?
We have a lpr server for printing (not CUPS for compatibility with complicated domain/systems). We configured our linux systems -- RHEL4, RHEL5, and Ubuntu 10.04 -- so that lpr is one of the gtk print possiblities by adding 'gtk-print-backends = "lpr,pdf,file"' to gtkrc. This works great for several gtk-enabled applications like Acrobat Reader (acroread).
However, Firefox 3+ (tested 3.6.3 & 3.0.19) doesn't actually queue any lpr jobs until after quitting the application.
We are running RHEL 5.1 on the 126.96.36.199 kernel. We are attempting to pass print jobs to a Lexmark printer with the lp -o landscape command. The print jobs continue to print "portrait". Is anyone aware of this issue and is there a work-around to get these print jobs to print in landscape format?
How can I combine multiple single page prints into a single print job? For example, using Firefox on Linux one can print a web page such that each sheet of paper has four pages printed upon it. I would like to combine several separate web pages so that for example, web-page-a, web-page-b and web-page-c (each less than one print page long) are printed on a single sheet of paper.
I would like to do this without having to use some form of image editor to combine and manage manually created temporary files.
I put a backgroud job in redhat5 as nohup commad script & I do not see end thsi jon. now I want to bring to as foreground job. how to do this? some paper told me as jobs jobnumber. jobs and spa does not work ps ua does not return a job number
does any linux admins out there have any mailing lists that they subscribe to? I go to lots of sites for knowledge but i was trying to put together the double whammy and pull together a solid mailing list for linux admins as well.
I am having a shell script which runs perl jobs.The script is starting the perl jobs when it is executed manually from the command line , but when the same script runs from crontab it is not starting the perl jobs.I have these things in the begining of the script
Amarok is nice, and currently the only thing I've tried that will actually play audio from network shares and not lock up. Only problem is that it doesn't seem to list my library by directory/folder structure.. only album/artist/genre or some variation thereof. Is there anything that does list by folder structure?
how to create a mailing list using the 'newlist' command in /var/local/mailman/. I sucessfully create the list and i receive a confirmation message but after adding members to the list, none of them receives mail sent to list.
My question is probably better explained by example; I have two files that look like this:
Code: $ cat file1.txt mercury venus earth mars
The general stipulations are as you'd expect; both files are of an arbitrary length, generally file1 will be larger than file2 but this is not guaranteed, the common lines (if any) will always be contiguous and only occur at the end of file1 and the start of file2.
Is it possible to list all jobs and their pids from a certain time frame? For instance if I needed to see all completed jobs from yesterday how would I do this? I've tried jobs -n but that was messed up because I had typed jobs right before that.
